Hello everyone. Glad to see we are all here since all the conspiracy theories about Revelation 12 and being the end of the world have spread like wildfire. I have been watching the news about all of the earthquakes, hurricanes, and wildfires and it has been horrible. One would think the world is coming to an end because the earth is showing its revenge on us for raping it of its natural resources.

I, on the other hand, have been stricken with sinusitis and feel like my face and head is going to explode. I have been sick for about three days now and in the bed for most of it. I feel so bad but I needed to sit up and do something or my body will hurt from laying down so much. I figured I would come on here and check in with everyone.

My writing has been going well thus far. My manuscript of “The Battle for Joshua” is complete and going through rounds of editing and I have also started my next book which the first chapter is already done and will be working on it some more this evening. I look forward to sharing them with the world and having everyone read my stories.

My husband has been taking care of me and having everyone leaving me alone so that I can get better and back to writing. He understands and supports my writing because it makes me happy. That is all he wants for me is to be happy and I love him so much for that. So, it is time for some medicine and I will leave you for today. I want to wish everyone with a birthday today, “Happy Birthday” and to everyone else a very good day. Take care.

Good morning to all my friends and family, old and new. I haven’t been here for a couple days due to my sugar dropping really low and my husband making me stay down because I have hit dangerously low levels. I love him so much because he really takes care of me.

This morning, my sister-in-law was having a bad emotional morning and crying because things just don’t seem to be going right this month. She was talking about giving up and disappearing from the world until my husband and I sat and talked with her for a bit while having coffee. Things have been going rough I’ll admit but we have been trying to stay positive.

As far as my writing is concerned, I have been working on the first round of editing to my Joshua manuscript plus I have finished the first chapter of a new book. I have been working so hard and the first chapter is approximately five thousand words. I expect this book to be a full-length novel and writing it with all my heart. The downside I think is because I write every detail pretty much because I want the reader to experience it as they read.

I am functioning this morning on only a couple hours of sleep because my medications didn’t kick in last night, so I had to force myself to lay down at five o’clock this morning. I feel pretty good this morning even with only a few hours of sleep. I feel a bit fatigued but other than that, things are okay. My sugar wasn’t that high this morning and my husband gave me my insulin.

I am sticking to my schedule today and will be writing a short story on my blog here in a few minutes so I better get ready so I will say goodbye for now and wish everyone a happy Friday. To everyone with a birthday today, “Happy Birthday!” Take care.

Hello, everyone. I just got up from a well-rested nap and I feel pretty good today. It has been very stressful around here the last few days. It came down to us having to move because of a certain situation, but after discussing it several times we finally came to a conclusion that as of right now we are not moving because we feel we are being forced out by others living in this house so they can have their way and we are not taking it. They are not going to win.

My sister-in-law is having a really rough time right now with all of the stress and drama going on in the house that she has actually isolated herself to her bedroom because she doesn’t want to hear all of the excuses and drama anymore. She woke up this morning very depressed and my husband and I had to keep her company for a bit until she began to feel better.

I, myself, went to bed at a fairly decent hour last night and slept almost all night except for a mishap in my sleep, but woke up feeling good until I saw my sister-in-law. Things have been good for the week as far as my writing is concerned. I have finished my Joshua manuscript and it is ready for its first round of editing. I have the first chapter of my next book already written and look forward to writing the second chapter tonight. It has been difficult to write with people screaming and crying in the house but I will be using my headphones so I don’t have to hear it anymore.

Well, things should get very interesting around here over the next couple of days and I will leave you with that information until I write again tomorrow. Everyone with a birthday today, “Happy Birthday” and to everyone else have an awesome evening. Take care.

Happy Friday, Everyone!! It is finally the end of the work week for most and I am so excited that it is over because of having to get up early to go to doctor’s appointments. I had another rough night last night with not being able to sleep even with my meds. I ended up going to sleep at about four fifteen this morning and was back up at six o’clock. I stayed up until about nine because I had to take my niece to the insurance office to get insurance on her new vehicle and when I got back home I was feeling funny and queezy so I went to bed and just got up.

I am feeling okay now and ready to get to work on today’s stuff. I have started writing my next manuscript and already have five hundred words of the first chapter written and hopefully will be finishing the first chapter today. I have so many books running through my head and it is fun writing stories as I see them in my mind like I am there with my characters. I feel the emotions and actions of them which makes it so cool.

Since moving here to my husband’s sisters house, we have been more relaxed and my husband has gone back to being the affectionate man he used to be. He took care of my feet yesterday by washing them and putting lotion on them. With me being diabetic and having health issues he does everything he can to take care of me.

Well, it’s time to get to work and start writing. I hope everyone has a great Friday and to everyone with a birthday today, “Happy Birthday” and we’ll talk again tomorrow. Take care.

Today started out dragging because I had been up every hour last night running to the bathroom and being out of my night time medication. Plus, I had a doctor’s appointment to get new refills on my medication and she even raised some of the doses to see if it helps. I still feel wore down and fatigued but I am trying my best to stay up and not go lay down.

Yesterday was an awesome day because I finally finished my manuscript for “The Battle for Joshua” and now I can begin editing it and getting it ready for publishing. I have already begun writing my next manuscript which gives me a break from the first one so I can edit it with new eyes. My husband is so proud of me and shows his support every day.

I just need my motivation back to get pumping and complete my writing. I will keep positive and it will happen. I have plenty of books and blogs to write and things to keep my mind focused on instead of listening to all the crying, screaming, and attitudes of spoiled children. My husband gave me his headphones to block it all out so that I can write without distractions.

Another personal thing or accomplishment is that my blood sugar has remained manageable and somewhat in the low numbers. I have been glad of that and so has everyone else except for when it decides it wants to tank down to fifty-nine. Everyone starts handing me sweets to bring it back up.

So, today I will be positive and productive and leave the drama and stress at the door. I am now going to get some writing done and I want to wish everyone with a birthday today, “Happy Birthday” and everyone else my wish for you is that Friday will get her soon and that everyone has an awesome day. Take care.

Hello, everyone. Sorry to have disappeared for a few days. I have been dealing with some health issues that we haven’t quite figured out what is going on yet. I have been so tired and feeling so fatigued that all I do is want to sleep. I have no energy for anything and it frustrates me because I don’t know what is causing it. It has been going on for a couple weeks now but I will be seeing my therapist on Wednesday to see if she might have any ideas.

I actually sat here yesterday forcing myself to stay up and created my book writing monthly goal sheet. With everything from writing the chapters to three rounds of editing to sending it off to a professional editor, I will be writing my current list of books well into February two- thousand and nineteen. Not considering any other books I come up with between now and then, lol. I have a few ideas for some more but I have jotted them down just until I get my already extensive list of books down some. I plan to stay busy and creative.

As far as how my day is going, it is manageable. Yesterday my nephew’s girlfriend celebrated one of her son’s birthdays with a party to which I pretty much stayed in my room. I have been feeling somewhat isolated the last week or so and don’t care to be bothered with anyone else. I put on that happy face for everyone in the house but my husband and sister-in-law know that I am not being real and hiding what is going on on the inside. I am a person who holds everything in until I find a safe way to release it. I call it throwing up to my therapist, lol.

I know that I am getting older because of the way my body aches and hurts but I try to stay young at heart. Walking is difficult at times because my feet haven’t been cooperating with me lately, or hurting so much that I can’t walk. My husband tries to get me up and walking throughout the day but it hurts so bad. I remember back in two- thousand and ten when I walked from Orlando, Florida to the border of Texas for a charity walk for the homeless and here I can barely walk about thirty feet without hurting or stopping to rest.

I need to find a way to motivate myself and to keep myself up during the day but cannot figure out what to do. I have no problem sitting up at night and I have stayed up until three or four o’clock in the morning without even being tired. Those are days when I would get up in the morning and stay up all day too. I don’t know but I will be seeing my primary care physician on the twenty- sixth of this month if it is not mental health being the culprit.

Well, I will stop here so that I can make use of my up time and finish the last chapter of my book “The Battle for Joshua”. I will begin the first round of editing tomorrow and look forward to sending it off to the editor. So, to everyone with a birthday today, “Happy Birthday”, and to everyone else have an awesome Sunday. Take care.

Good morning, everyone!! How are we this morning? I woke up feeling pretty good this morning and ready for whatever the day may bring. I have been working my schedule this morning and so far I am on track. I have informed everyone in the house that I will be busy working and will not accept any interruptions.

I will be completing my Joshua manuscript today and printing it up for editing. I will hopefully today or tomorrow be starting my next manuscript while having time set aside for editing the other one. I have a whole day scheduled for working and look forward to seeing my progress.

My writing is now my life and it makes me happy and gives me a feeling of completeness. My husband supports me in my endeavor and I thank him for that every day. Well, I need to get going on my next task, so to everyone with a birthday today, “Happy Birthday!” and to everyone else have an awesome hump day. Take care.

Morning, everyone. How are we doing today? I wish I could say my day started off good, but it didn’t. When you have a family meeting and people are not willing to give in to compromise or allow someone to help to make a situation better is just so frustrating. Then, for them to make a statement that you accused them of not caring about their kids is hurtful when it was not meant that way and that was not even insinuated.

It just throws your whole day off and makes you not want to say anything else because it will be interpreted the wrong way. I will just keep quiet from now on and bury myself into my writing and save up money to move into our own place so that I won’t be a problem for anyone anymore.

I know that I might sound like a wuss but because of my mental health status, it makes me very vulnerable to people’s words. I take things so hard that it just happens and then the rest of my day is depressing and everything is hurtful and I find myself crying all day that it makes my husband frustrated because he can’t fix me.

Well, that is enough of my depressing talk, so I will end this post here and hopefully have a better tomorrow. To everyone with a birthday today, “Happy Birthday” and to everyone else, have an awesome hump day. Take care.

Good evening, everyone. How are you all doing this Friday evening? Any party goers out there? We have finally gotten our room set up and cleaned up and now my work station is ready to go back to writing.

It has been a rough day for me because I woke up not feeling good and slept in until sometime this early afternoon. Then, to top it all off, my husband and I get into an argument and stop talking to each other for a few minutes until we both calmed down and then we talked it out. We are good now and he is trying to fix his PlayStation 4 controller to play a game.

I still feel a bit out of sorts but will be taking it easy the rest of the evening and going to bed early to get enough sleep. I am anxious to get back to writing and getting my book together for editing. It will be my first fictional book and I am very excited about completing it. I am almost ready to print up my book notes for my next nonfiction book in my series, “How I Survived” and also look forward to publishing it.

The drama and stress are now subsiding and I feel a little better about our living situation and hopefully, by the end of the year, we can have enough saved for our own place, which is what we both want. There are just too many people living in this house with five of them being kids age twelve and under. With all of the yelling, screaming, and fighting, it is hard to get any writing done or being able to hear myself think. I will be doing my writing during the week while everyone is at school and it is quiet here.

Well, it is time for me to say good night and as always to everyone with a birthday today, “Happy Birthday” and to everyone else, have an awesome night. Take care.

Good morning, everyone. Did everyone get to experience the lunar eclipse yesterday? We were supposed to get a total eclipse but only received a partial which was still cool to see. We finished our last load of stuff from the dilapidated trailer and into my sister-in-law’s house yesterday and now it is time to settle in until we save up enough to get our own place. My whole body ached really bad from moving but we got it done.

We are going to be setting up our room today so that I can set up my work station for writing. I look forward to getting back to writing and seeing what other creative juices I can open the flood gates too. My list of books and outlines are still waiting for me to begin so it is imperative that I get back to writing so that I can share my stories with the world.

Well, it’s that time to get my day started. I wish everyone with a birthday today, ” Happy Birthday” and to everyone else have a great and awesome day. Take care.
